Each of the four players chose his color to start the game and put the color icon on the start button.
You’ll need four-sided dice, cards, and a game board to play Jumanji. The game board is divided into four quadrants, each representing a different color. Players start in the middle of the board and take turns rolling the die. Depending on the number, the player will move a certain number of spaces along the path. If they land in an event space, they must solve the event before continuing on. The first player to reach the end of the path wins!
The games come with stickers that you have to apply to the dice. Once you have done that, put the dice in the bag and shake it well.
To solve a riddle, the player must answer correctly. If they answer incorrectly, they must roll again and move back the number of spaces they rolled. To complete a challenge, the player must collect all required items. They can then trade these items for a blessing.
Pressing the dome in the center
Every player has to roll the three dice provided with the game. After that, he has to press the dome, and the game will present him with a riddle, and the player has to solve the riddle. There are over 100 challenge cards in the game. These challenges are written on the cards. You have to insert the card inside the central dome, and the board game will read it out loud.
If the player solves the riddle, he can move ahead, but if he cannot solve it, he only has to stay in his position. If any players reach the center of the board, the game will be over for all, and that player will be declared the winner. But when one of the players wins, the whole group playing the game will be declared the winner.
Where to Buy Jumanji board game

To play Jumanji, you will need a six-sided die and a game board. The game board is divided into four quadrants, each representing a different color. Players start in the middle of the board and take turns rolling the die. Depending on what number is rolled, the player will move a certain number of spaces along the path. If they land in an event space, they must solve the event before continuing on. The first player to reach the end of the path wins!
How do you win?
The first player to reach the end of the path wins! If playing with 2-4 players, the game can be played in teams. In this case, the first team to reach the end of the path wins.
Jumanji Game Events
There are four different event types in Jumanji: riddles, challenges, traps, and blessings. Riddles must be solved before the player can continue on their turn. Challenges must be completed to receive a blessing. Traps will cause the player to lose their turn. Blessings will help the player on their quest.
Some events that can happen while playing Jumanji are: losing a turn, drawing a card, moving backward, or gaining/losing money. Spaces on the game board represent these events. When a player lands on one of these spaces, they must follow the instructions on the space to continue playing.
Significance of Cards
You have to spread cards all across the board. All the cards have different tasks, events, and results. Green cards are, for example: “You found a secret path! Move two spaces forward.” or “A mandatory rest is needed. Miss a turn.” Red cards are mostly negative effects like:
“Move back three spaces because of quicksand.” or “You lost one life because of a venomous snake bite.” There are also yellow event cards that get shuffled into the deck at the start of each game round. These are more complex tasks like: “Each player loses one life unless somebody can answer this riddle correctly…” If a player manages to solve the task, he gets rewarded with e.g. an extra life.
If a player doesn’t have any lives left and he draws a red card, he’s out of the game. The rest of the players can try to complete the tasks without him and win the game as a team.
There is a symbol on each face of the dice, and you have to match that with the symbol on the card. Also, there is a number on the card, and you have to move ahead that number of times.
If you land on Rhyno space, you can directly place the rhinoceros in front of another player to block him from moving ahead.
Benefits of playing Jumanji Board Game
Jumanji is a great board game for families and friends because it promotes teamwork and problem-solving skills. It is also a lot of fun! If you are looking for a new board game to add to your collection, Jumanji is a great option.
We ordered the Jumanji board game by Spinmaster from Amazon, and the packing was excellent, with no damages. It reached us very fast, considering we are in a rural area. The game board is very colorful, with four different quadrants. The game pieces are also of good quality. We played the game with our two kids (ages 8 and 10), and they both loved it! The game was very easy to learn, and we could finish the whole game in about an hour.
The only downside is that some luck is involved in the game, but that’s expected with any board game. Overall, we highly recommend Jumangi to anyone looking for a fun and family-friendly board game!
When we open the board, we listen to our favorite Jumsngi music, and it seems you are entering a magical forest. Jumanji is a cooperative board game for 2-4 players aged 8+, where every player has to work together to find a way out of the jungle by rolling dice and moving through the jungle. The further you get, the more difficult the tasks become. Players have to solve riddles, face challenges and help each other to make it out alive! The first player who reaches the center of the board wins the game.
